Abstract

As a promising solution to offload cellular traffic, device-to-device (D2D) communication has been adopted to help disseminate contents. In this paper, the D2D offloading utility is maximized by proposing an optimal content pushing strategy based on the user interests and sharing willingness. Specifically, users are classified into groups by their interest probabilities and carry out D2D communications according to their sharing willingness. Although the formulated optimization problem is nonconvex, the optimal solution is obtained in closed-form by applying Karush-Kuhn-Tucker conditions. The theoretical and simulation results show that more contents should be pushed to the user group that is most willing to share, instead of the group that has the largest number of interested users.
